I'm very glad that I spent my one-week vacation in Istanbul as a Mavi guest. People there are very lovely, trying to do everything so you would feel welcome. Location is also a strong point of this hostel, cause everything is near. Special thanks to Reza!!

I really enjoyed my staying at mavi guesthouse.stuff in the hostel is wonderful and extremely helpful (especially Reza,thank you so much). They will do anything to make you feel welcome and at home.. We stayed in the rooftop bedroom and it was nice, but I would suggest you to take room with 8 or less beds.

we needed a cheap place to stay for a few nights and we decided not to be pretentious about the conditions that much, because compared to other places at that price it was really really close to the main attractions. it was not the middle of the season when we stayed there and that was in our benefit, it would...

A nice place to stay if you are visiting for only a short period of time. The staff and the other people from the hostel were very friendly, always helped us no matter what problems we've had. I would recommend this place only if you stay for a short period of time.

Unfortunately the Mavi ONUR guesthouse is closed. Instead, do not try it. It is a terrible place, smelly and the owner stiffed us. This area there are slightly more expensive, but more good guesthouses.

The hostel has a great location and view (city center and just a few minutes walk from Topkapi palace). The staff is very helpful, friendly and kind. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Toilettes and showers look a bit old but clean enough. Best budget price. I definitely would stay at Mavi Gesthouse again.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Mavi Guesthouse when we visited Istanbul. The hostel/hotel has a great location right next to Aya Sofia and Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque. We found all of the staff very friendly and helpful with advice, logistics, and anything we needed. This is really a good place to meet great people from around the world... More

probably the cheapest hostel in Istanbul. staff very friendly and helpful. toilets and bathroom are not perfectly clean but i guess it's usual for this price. the location is also nice, just behind of hagia Sophia. The owner, Ali, is very friendly and will help you to find the best hammams and restaurants. I recommend !

Don't expect luxury. But it is a very friendly, clean place with a great view from the terrace. It's easy to meet nice people there and it is probably the cheapest place to stay in Istanbul. I recommend it.
